  • Win XP SP2 Admin Pass Lost.

    hi,
    I am unable to log in to my administrator id as i have forgotten the Password for the same. i have tried the alternate logon trick but to no avail. I keep getting an error message - "System Error 5, Access is denied." This is flashed as soon as i type NET USER ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD. My system is not networked and these are the accounts on it.

    local user accounts:
    User
    local system accounts:
    1 Administrator (admin)
    2 Guest
    3 HelpAssistant
    4 Mc Donald's (admin)
    5 SUPPORT_388945a0

    Kindly help as there is no floppy disk or cd drive.
    Waiting for a reply,

    Shiningbhaskar.

      So why don't you log on the "Mc Donald's" account and change the admin password from there?

      The LOGON.SCR trick (I believe that's what you are referring too?) hasn't worked for some time as best I can tell. Microsoft closed that back door. Search this site for LOGON.SCR and/or look at my post from earlier today:

          If you just do the repair without the Shift-F10, doesn't it reset the SAM anyway and ask you for a new Administrator password?

          If not (been a while since I did a repair), here's a nice link to a recipe for this Shift-F10 approach:

          As always, no express or implied warranty nor any recommendation to pursue this approach.
